The condition led to a business deal.

NASCAR racer Dale Earnhardt Jr. is known to have kosmemophobia — an irrational fear of jewelry.

But when he married Amy Reimann on New Year’s Eve 2016, he had to find a way around the phobia in order to wear a wedding ring. NESN reports that Earnhardt recently discussed his fear on his “Dale Jr. Download” podcast.

Earnhardt can’t stand being around metal jewelry. He’s said in the past that he finds it “creepy.”

He has a wooden ring, but he doesn’t always wear it because it could easily break. For everyday wear he sticks with something more durable. NESN reports that he and his wife “he and his wife Amy have a deal with a company that makes silicone rings.”

After 42 Years in Business, They Chose Wilkerson to Close Up Shop

After 42 years, it was time for Gina McHugh to hang up her bench tools and plan on doing something completely different.

They called Wilkerson. “They’d always been a part of our bridal jewelry selection,” says Gina, “and I felt really good about their quality and service. So, when we were looking for someone to work with us, Wilkerson was a natural.” With the kind of service and support Wilkerson is known for, Gina says their sales consultants made their retirement sale, “successful and quite easy.”
